Need help understanding the pattern

What does 1x1 rib 12 sts mean?

It probably means to knit 1x1 rib for 12 stitches. (k1, p1,k1, p1, etc) Can you tell us the name of the pattern and give a link if possible?

The pattern is call Whippet by Ankestrick

Cute pattern! Since it’s a paid for pattern I can’t look at it. Is this the button band? I can see that that looks to be about 12 stitches of ribbing. Don’t post the pattern here it’s against copyright, but you can post a few lines and tell us where this is in the pattern it will help.

Does the 12 sts just mean (k1,p1) 12times?

That means to do the ribbing over 12 stitches, so six times. It would say 12 times or 12x if that’s what she meant.
